His Crown induced contention was: " a 168 going 2800 is a 168 going 2800"
You are faster for your caliber. The 7mm bullets have a higher sd at the same weight, so they will penetrate better(if they are the same construction) and should have a better bc.
If you were both using the same bullet, instead of him using a average bc hunting bullet, and you using a rather high bc hybrid type bullet, it would be closer.
That being siad, it realy doesn't have anything to do with the price of tea in China until the range is extended past a few hundred yards.
